Jim - you helped me set up streaming on my server. It uses the
(undocumented?) "outstreamcmd" command

In my case, using the ezstream program and SHOUTCAST rather than ICECAST
(but must be similar)


In rpt.conf


outstreamcmd=/bin/sh,-c,/usr/bin/lame --preset cbr 16 -r -m m -s 8.0
--bitwidth 16 - -  | /usr/bin/ezstream -c /etc/ezstream.xml


The xml file looks like this (minus the actual IP and password of course)






      Since the reencoding feature is enabled below, <format /> sets the

       output format of the stream.






      The following settings are used to describe your stream to the server.

      It's up to you to make sure that the bitrate/samplerate/channels

      information matches up with your lame encoder settings below.


    <svrinfoname>W4BRM/R, Allstar Link Node 27021</svrinfoname>


    <svrinfogenre>Amateur Radio -- Allstar Link Network</svrinfogenre>

    <svrinfodescription>Live Monitor of Allstar Link Network Node 27021





      Prohibit the server to advertise the stream on a public YP directory:

not even close..

There is a way to do it, it does work, it *is* documented somewhere, I dont
remember a thing about it (intentionally :-) ).
If someone who is into this stuff happens to remember where it's documented,
please help this dude.

work. I have the icecast server running and waiting for a connection from
ices. but it never 'picks up' . Also create the stream.call file - seems to
not work either. I gotta get some rest and will take alook at it again
tomorrow - but if anyone has something working or knows a better way to
approach this i would like to hear from you
